Pomegranate Blueberry Mint Mocktail

I go through phases with drinking alcohol, and right now, cocktails and wine are just not it for me. However, when the temperatures start to get warm, I begin to have an aversion to alcohol. Lately, I have enjoyed developing mocktail recipes with common pantry ingredients. I’ve gotten into a bit of a routine at the end of the day after work; I walk moose around the block, come home, make a mocktail and enjoy a few chapters of my book on the porch before starting dinner. It’s such a relaxing way to end the day before a meal.

Balancing the flavor profile of a mocktail

The key to a good mocktail is balancing your flavors. Since alcohol adds a sharpness to a drink, typically, when you just remove the alcohol, the drink is on the sweeter side. When I develop a mocktail, I like to make sure that it’s subtle if there is added sugar. I like the fruit to shine through and add brightness to the drink. Also, you can buy ice at sonic – a true game-changer when you need the perfect crushed ice.

In this specific Mocktail I used the base of a probiotic soda from Health-Ade to add the bubbles and the richness in the pomegranate flavor. I then used fresh berries to add a bright element to pair the flavors of the bubbly soda. The mix of fresh and canned flavor increased the intensity of the pomegranate. I used to find mint really confusing when it came to anything besides toothpaste or gum, but when used delicately in drinks herbs elevate the flavor profile of a drink.
